What Our Equity Release Customers Say....

Katie was very thorough in her dealings with us, ascertaining what our needs were and what our future plans were before making her recommendations based on that information. We had a very clear idea of the pros and cons and costs involved. We decided to proceed with the equity release and Katie has been there to assist throughout the process.

Katie has patiently supported me for several months, as I have changed my mind, and considered moving house, before finally deciding to arrange Equity Release on my current home. It has been a difficult time of my life, and her clear , professional advice has been invaluable.

Mrs W, 13/10/23, Sussex

Katie organised a video linkup, for our initial meeting, as I cannot visit her office. Her professional, kind manner was reassuring. She gave an hour of her time, free of charge, and replied to my emails very quickly. She prepared the paperwork for Equity Release on my current home and remained calm and helpful, when i changed my mind , and decided to sell my house, and move to a cheaper area. She is willing to organise Equity Release on the new property, which will greatly increase my buying power. She explains why somethings are not possible, and has immense patience.

Kerry was fantastic, she responded promptly to an enquiry and attended my father's property to provide comprehensive advice on suitable products for my father. Kerry explained the process clearly and the communication process was excellent. Kerry is knowledgeable, efficient and extremely professional aside from being very warm and friendly.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Kerry to anyone who requires advice on a range of financial services.
